I noticed I have my first zucchini growing today. I have two plants so that means I'll will be swamped in zucs very soon.


What is your favorite way to cook them?

I'm already planning to let a few grow to monstrous sizes for zucchini bread.. but what to do with the rest?

My Aunt use to put them in bags, place them on neighbors doorsteps, ring the bell and RUN!
(for those that don't know.. zucchini plants make a ton of zucchinis)

My wife makes zuchini fries which are awesome. The same exact thing as french fries - just using zuchini instead of potatoes. Also believe it or not, dicing them up raw and throwing them in a salad is pretty tasty.

You can make an awesome relish with them. It tastes better then store bought and one batch makes about 5 pints. You only have to use a hot water bath on them not a pressure cooker. Last time my brother was Iraq I made some cookies with some zucchini and they stayed nice and fresh. You can always shred it for bread and freeze it. It also works to freeze it for veggie soup this winter.

It's always good for oriental stir-fry.

We slice the small ones lengthwise.
Marinate them in an acidic salad dressing, like italian.

Then grill them, along side the steaks or burgers.

I chop mine up into smallish pieces and cook them in a pan with a little olive oil and then mix them with chopped tomatoes and put some cheese on top. I also mix that with pasta sometimes. Zucchini is one of my favorites!

You mean the purple thing! Aubergine/Eggplant which is now known as IT.

Yep, thought so!

My wife does this great dish with IT.

Spicy Garlic Minced Pork and IT.

There is a Lee Kum Kee sauce. Not sure if you can get it where you are.

I also used 2 to make some Nun Chuka's for a fancy dress party last year!!

Nope the Green thing.
it's a summer squash that you normally pick when it's about 8 inches or so long.. and if you miss one it will be 3 feet long before you know it.

The British call them courgettes maybe they are known by that name in Hong Kong?

I picked my first one a little bit ago.. sauteed it in a little olive oil. YUM.

5 min from the plant to my mouth, nothing can beat fresh veggies.

Sautee lightly in olive oil with onions and yellow squash. Tomato too, if you like. Add some parmesan if that sounds good.

Lightly sauteed fresh garden veggies, so they retain a little crunch. Yum!
